One of the most outstanding UK music magazines of the 1960s. Rave burst onto the scene with its first issue in February 1964 and right from the word go it had a very lively ‘now’ feel to it. The magazine didn’t take either itself or its subject too seriously and yet every month it produced a very readable and enjoyable magazine. One of the most outstanding aspects of the magazine were the superb full colour covers. Perhaps, even better were the numerous exclusive photo sessions it managed to get with the stars throughout its life in the 60s – great colour and black and white photos which you would never see elsewhere. In addition, Rave carried tons of superb interviews and articles on all the major groups and artists of the 60s.

Rave usually contained approximately 60 pages. Each magazine measures 27cm x 21.5cm (10.75 inches x 8.5 inches). Several of the magazines from the collection have a very small price sticker on the front cover and several have the first line of the recipient addresses written on the front or back cover.
